The GOP caucuses and primaries in the States of Alabama, American Samoa, Hawaii and Mississippi have brought mixed results for the Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney.

The good news is that Romney is the clear winner of the nonbinding caucuses in American Samoa, which will earn him all the nine GOP delegates from the small territory. With 99% of all precincts reporting, Romney won the binding Hawaii caucuses. The six delegates and three superdelegates chosen are all in support of Mitt Romney.

In the southern states of Alabama and Mississippi however, with 99% of all precincts reporting in both states, Rick Santorum managed to come in first in both open primaries. Rick Santorum cheered in Lafayette, La.: “We did it again.”

In Alabama, Rick Santorum won 35% of the vote and 18 delegates, Newt Gingrich 29% and 9 delegates, Mitt Romney 29% (a few hundred votes behind Santorum) and 9 delegates. Ron Paul finished a distant fourth with 5% and no delegates.

In the Mississippi primary, Rick Santorum came in fist with 33% of the vote and 13 delegates, ahead of Newt Gingrich with 31% and 12 delegates, Mitt Romney with 30% and 12 delegates. Ron Paul finished last with 4% and no delegates.

The Republican Party presidential primaries are far from over, but any other winner than Mitt Romney, who has the GOP establishment behind him and is still by far leading the delegates count, would be a huge surprise. Anyway, as written many times before, the former governor remains the only serious contender for the top job in the Republican field.
